IE SP1 from JANUARY trouble

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Lady Dungeness, Jun 21, 2007.

  1. I'm reinstalling Windows XP Home. Windows Update says I need to install
    KB918439, which is a cumulative update for Internet Explorer SP1, first
    offered in January 2007. When I try to install, I get a message that it
    isn't needed because the components are from a later date.

    I have already installed the IE Cumulative Update from June 2007.

    Do I need something from the January update? If so, how do I get what I
    need? (A life-long question, perhaps?)

    If I don't need it, how do I stop it from being reoffered?

    Thank you.

    Hello LD,

    I'm not sure why you are trying to install anything related to SP1.

    You can install SP2 directly -- it's not required that SP1 be on your PC
    before SP2 can be installed. And unless XP is at SP2, I'm pretty certain
    that Windows Updates will require that it be installed before it does any
    other update checking.

    Once you're at the SP2 level, then go to the Windows Update site and
    download any other high priority fixes that are indicated.

  3. I do not understand your answer. I have installed Win XP SP2 and am now
    installing the post-SP2 updates. To repeat my concern:

    I'm sorry, LD. I seem to have misunderstood what you said.

    As your starter post mentioned only the reinstallation of XP Home without
    reference to any Service Packs, I had thought that you were concerned about
    installing something related to SP1 without realizing that you DID, in fact,
    already install SP2.

    Right now, I'm unable to get into the Windows Update site. I'm back in the
    mode where I am informed: "Get the latest Windows Update software.We've made
    improvements to our website. To download the new version of the software and
    begin using Windows Update, please click Install Now."

    But I know from experience that -- although I DO already have the new
    software -- if I tell it to Install Now, I'll get an error message. It
    comes...and goes...and comes...goes... But I'm a patient man.

    However, my recollection is that if you click on the show details part of an
    update there is a box that says "Do not show me this again" or some words to
    that effect. If you put a tick mark there, you shouldn't be offered that
    update in the future.

  5. Thank you Alan. Before I make the update offer disappear, I'd like to know
    whether it's being offered because there's something in there that I need,
    or whether it's being offered as a glitch.

    I think the SP1/SP2 confusion came from me referencing IE SP1 right after
    referencing XP Home (without mentioning service packs).

    I'm sorry you're having trouble getting to Windows Updates -- it's
    frustrating, but you sound like you can roll with the punches. Good luck!

  6. Ehm, KB918439 is *not* an Cumulative Update for IE, but an additional
    one (not only for IE) reflecting security holes in (AOL)ART picture
    files. And no, it's dated on June 200*6*. See also the according Security
    Bulletin MS06-022 for details:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms06-022.mspx

    Since you seem to be on Windows XP SP2, here's where you can download
    the update manually:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...a1-94cb-4fe9-b89e-46876d068b9a&DisplayLang=en

  7. Ottmar,
    You are so right! My mistake. But I still need to know what to do, and
    why. WU keeps telling me to install KB918439. When I try to install it, I
    get this message:

    Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this syst4em i snewer
    than the update you are applying. There is no need to install this update.

    Also, my shortcuts have stopped working. And my keyboardd shortcuts, like
    Control+V, have stopped working. I did a System Restore to apoint from last
    night, when everything was fine. But it didn't fix my shortcuts. Can you
    help wth that, too, please?

  8. I would download KB918439 manually and install it afterwards. If you
    still get the error message, have a look into the "KB918439.log" file
    to be found in the "Windows" folder. The last 30-50 lines should be
    enough for those interessted in helping you.
    That's nothing specific related to any Windows update.

    Bye,

  9. That's what I've been doing. It's downloaded to HD. Then I go offline,
    close AV, and try to install. No joy.

  11. PA Bear -- You just can't stop, can you? What? Are you the neighborhood
    gossip? Just a busybody? Muckraker? Work for the CIA?

    What is the purpose of all this?

    Did it ever occur to you that I AM WORKING ON 4 DIFFERENT COMPUTERS? I need
    to get them all cleaned up, running well, and then network them. I've got
    until August 15th to have this operational.

    Are you going to continue to follow me around, from list to list, forum to
    forum, dogging my every post, and referring the nice people who respond with
    help to an unrelated post on a different forum?

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    I'm sorry for butting in here....but this is so familiar to what goes on in
    the various social Web Forums that I participate in.

    Some of the Forums indicate they have, say, 600 members. In reality, some of
    them have maybe 25 members, each of them with many, many different nicks.

  14. Now there's two of you?

    My "ongoing problems" are more apparent than real, PA bear. I've got one
    computer that is messed up pretty badly, and one tech has bailed. It looks
    like I'll have to wipe the drive and do a reinstall to factory settings.

    The other computers need to be updated and configured properly. They do not
    share the same problems. So "alerting a valued colleague" to "ongoing
    problems" is likely to cause confusion. BTW, it's curious that you would
    characterize the problems as having to do with ME, rather than with my
    COMPUTERS.

    I changed my username because someone was bugging me. Somehow I sense that
    your policing activities on this and other newsgroups and other forums is
    not going to help me get my computers running well. If the problems on
    different COMPUTERS are related, I will say so in my posts.

    I'm sure you have the best of intentions. But I suggest that your time
    could be better spent helping other users, rather than following me around
    and trying to get your friends to stay away.

    BACK TO THE SUBJECT OF MY POSTING: I cannot install the ART-fix update, yet
    WU keeps telling me I need it. Do I need it? Or not? If not, I shall
    configure WU to not offer it again. If yes, I'd like to know how to get it
    installed.

    Ottmar has tried to help, PA Bear has spread gossip, and Alan has added his
    two cents. Perhaps the three of you working together could offer me an
    answer to this question. I would surely appreciate it.

    LD,

    Nah, I only commented because I thought the fact that even users in
    Techie-type forums use multiple nicks was funny.

    But, if you want to be paranoid and think that PA Bear and I are the same
    person, knock yourself out.

    Something to consider, though: How do you know for sure that PA Bear,
    Ottmar, I and many others in here really are NOT the same person??

    It might be time to bring out the tin-foil beanies, I think.

  17. I know you guys are different. But I hope you were exaggerating when you
    suggested that 25 ID's = 1 person. The only time I switch ID's is when
    somebody has made me feel unwelcome. Seriously though -- do you have an
    answer to my question? About the KB918439 update, which is the only update
    that WU still lists as needed for this machine?

  18. Oh I have to agree -- it's all very funny. Would you happen to have an
    answer to my question about the KB918439 update, which is the only update
    that WU still says is needed for my machine?

    Hi LD,

    If you look in Add/Remove in Control panel (and make sure there's a tick
    mark in the Show Updates box), do you see KB918439 listed?

    If you do see it, then it's most likely been installed, and you can disable
    Windows Updates from continuing to ask you about it, via the method I
    mentioned earlier in the day.

  20. Hi Alan,

    Thank you for offering the suggestion. Yes, there's a checkmark in the Show
    Updates box. No, KB918439 is not listed.

    Perhaps I installed the updates in the wrong order? I installed the June
    2007 IE Cumulative Update before I tried to install the KB918439 ART update.
    So I have no idea what would happen if I came acrosss an ART image. They're
    not very common, but I'd like to have good security as I plan to use this
    computer for business soon.

    Do you perchance have another idea?
